Ruby Brown

Brown’s sculptures evolve through an intuitive hunting and gathering process. Working from a studio hoarded with found objects and structures, Brown develops a new age allegorical language to explore the intimacy between mythology and reality. Harsh urban materials are fused together to consider the fleshy weight of boundaries and anti-natural territories. Rich in strong line, colour saturation and phallic and vulvic symbolism, Brown acknowledges but rejects traditional indigenous visual signifiers. This reactive process generates a contemporary female narrative and invites the viewer to explore the space of the half-caste; the union and separation of whiteness and blackness.
